Ivy Cottage is a stunning, spacious stone cottage situated in the heart of the village of Earl Sterndale, five miles from Buxton, Derbyshire and amidst the wonderful countryside of upper Dovedale and the Staffordshire moorlands, with a wealth of walks and cyciling routes from the doorstep.
Formerly three separate cottages, the owners have refurbished the property with a mixture of family antiques and new modern facilities to create one large and wonderful holiday home, ideal for a group of friends and families.
You step into the property through the beautiful new conservatory with chaise lounge, table and chairs, in effect an extra living room, and then enter a spacious hallway/snug room with two bookcases filled with a variety of books and a corner chair where you can sit and delve into a good book in the peace and quiet.
To the right of the front door is a cosy sitting room, with woodburning stove and with two plush sofas and a TV with a DVD player and radio/CD player.
Here you can settle down after a long day and relax.
